Robbie Keane: Has enjoyed Villa stint
KEANE COULD MAKE RETURN
Robbie Keane says it is a case of 'watch this space' regarding his Premier League future, but has played down talk suggesting he could stay on at Aston Villa.
The Republic of Ireland international linked up with Villa in January on a short-term loan deal.
The LA Galaxy striker was keen to work on his fitness and sharpness during the MLS off-season and jumped at the chance of returning to England.
The former Tottenham and Liverpool striker has enjoyed a successful stint with Villa, sparking speculation that they will look to keep him for the remainder of the campaign.
Keane admits he cannot rule out the possibility of striking a deal with a Premier League club before the season is out, but insists his priority at present is heading back to America and helping his current employers.
"There's been talk about me staying on at Villa but, at the end of the day, Galaxy are my parent club and, first and foremost, I have to respect them," said the 31-year-old forward.
"In March, they have some big games - there is the start of the new league season and they have a quarter-final in their Champions League.
"I've enjoyed my spell here at Villa. It's a great club but it was my choice to go to the States. I could have stayed in the Premier League for a few more years but I didn't.
"When I go back to LA, it could be completely different. At this moment in time I can't tell what will happen. It's a case of watch this space.
"But people have seen over the years with the clubs I've been at, how quickly I leave if I don't think I fit in.
"Once I get something in my head I make a decision fairly quickly and stick to it."
